Two towers of wooden cubes showing the UN Sustainable Development Goals against a white background with a cartoon of skyscrapers, a plant and cyclical arrows to represent sustainability

The challenge of building an environmentally and socially responsible future is a systems problem that requires cross-discipline thinking and cross-sector collaboration. From developing sustainable manufacturing pathways for essential products, to decarbonising the energy sector, our research is committed to achieving a resilient and sustainable zero-carbon world.
